Rome, 1973. Masked men kidnap a teenage boy named John Paul Getty III. His grandfather, Jean Paul Getty, is the richest man in the world, a billionaire oil magnate, but he's notoriously miserly. His favorite grandson's abduction is not reason enough for him to part with any of his fortune. All the Money in the World (2017) follows Gail, Paul's devoted, strong-willed mother, who unlike Getty, has consistently chosen her children over his fortune. Her son's life in the balance with time running out, she attempts to sway Getty even as her son's mob captors become increasingly more determined, volatile and brutal. When Getty sends his enigmatic security man Fletcher Chace to look after his interests, he and Gail become unlikely allies in this race against time that ultimately reveals the true and lasting value of love over money.
Drama Thriller - This is a fact-based drama/thriller aimed at adult moviegoers.
Michelle Williams has the lead role though as a whole the balance is
more of an ensemble effort, with Mark Wahlberg and Christopher
Plummer in prominent supporting parts. Language, violence, drug
use, and adult subject matter make the film not for kids.

These are great reviews from all ages, both males and females. Just over 40% of both the males and females LOVED "ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD."
